Cultural Competency (P603)
Prevention Specialists are experts in Planning and Evaluation, Prevention Education and Service Delivery, Communication, Community Organization, Public Policy and Environmental Change. They are employed in schools, by non-profits, in government, and through faith-based organizations. Prevention professionals work to educate children, families and communities about the dangers of alcohol and other drugs. They also help children develop the life skills they'll need to avoid destructive behaviors that can lead to problems. They help families learn how to communicate better, and they give parents the skills they need to raise healthy children who make smart choices.
